Here come the BHGS Climate Heroes!
Save the World Club pledge to save the planet
For the past few weeks, members of our Save The World Club have participated in the BBC Climate Heroes Challenge in order to help our environment and combat climate change. We made pledges about Plastic, Power and Plants.
We chose to: – sort through our recycling at home carefully – switch from cling film to a reusable sandwich wrap – swap half an hour on screen time to half an hour outside – turn off an electrical device when we are finished using it rather than leaving it on standby – plant pollinator-friendly plants and look after them – save water by turning off the taps when brushing our teeth.
As a Club pledge, we went round all classrooms after school to turn off lights in any unused classrooms. Although these are small steps, we will continue with our pledges and make a difference to our world!
We completed our pledges over three weeks and created a collage from recycled materials, displaying photos of evidence of our pledges to save the world and become ‘climate heroes!’. We have sent off our evidence to earn our Blue Peter Green badges. This is the first time that adults can receive a Blue Peter badge so Mrs Ruffhead is very excited that she will receive one!
